Rihanna ties The BEATLES for 2nd most weeks at number one

Ms. Fenty can do no wrong. Did I also mention that her "best friend, partner in crime" and younger brother Rorrey Fenty will be hosting at Toronto's trendiest nightclub, EFS tonight after her concert?

As reported when the song reached No. 1, “Work” is Rihanna’s 14th Hot 100 leader, lifting her into a solo share of the third-most No. 1s all-time, ahead of Michael Jackson (13). The Beatles lead with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey (18). “Work” is also the record-breaking ninth Hot 100 No. 1 in a row by non-U.S.-born acts (Rihanna is from Barbados and Drake, from Canada), while this week marks the record-extending 40th straight week that non-American talent has led the Hot 100.

More about The Beatles and Carey: As Rihanna has now spent 59 total weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 via her 14 leaders, she has tied The Beatles for the second-most weeks at No. 1. Here is an updated look at the acts that have spent the most time atop the Hot 100 since the chart’s 1958 inception:

79 weeks, Mariah Carey 59 weeks, Rihanna 59 weeks, The Beatles 50 weeks, Boyz II Men 47 weeks, Usher

Geez. For a song that people don't know what the heck the person singing is saying, she sure is getting alot of mileage out of "Work". If you feel like congratulating her on the accomplishment...odds are you know where to find her tonight after the concert :)
